Fresh from the oven

I am almost finished. Here they are fresh from the oven. The plush oven, that is.

I am sort of disappointed in the format of the swap this year. I guess the number of participants became too large. In the past you belonged to a swap group of 10 people. You would send an ornament to those people and they would send one to you. It was really nice. You got to know a little bit about the people who had made each of your ornaments. This year they are using Swapbot and it is completely random. I have my list of 10 recipients, but they are not the 10 people that will be sending me ornaments. It is a little bit sad because you do not have that exchange between yourself and that other group member. I have also read that there already problems. One person commented that they already heard from someone t hat was supposed to send her an ornament. They were withdrawing from the swap. So, she will be sending out 10 ornaments and only receiving 9. I guess this is always a risk when you join in any kind of swap.
My sister did not think I should add the eyes, but I think they look cuter that way. I guess I try to animate everything.

Here they are drying on a tray.

All I have to do is add the ribbon used to hang it on the tree.
